Shit That Comes Out Today: June 23, 2017

  • Phil Boozeman

I’ll cut the bullshit and just get straight to it: This week is fucking stacked with killer releases. I guess that explains why we’ve had so many mediocre release weeks this month… they were saving all the good stuff for today! We’ve got new albums from Dying Fetus, Goatwhore, Municipal Waste, Clutch and the band name winner of the week, Tyrannosorceress. Man, there’s so much good stuff coming out this week that I don’t even need to use one of the featured spots to tell you about an album that you shouldn’t buy. That’s saying something right there, folks. So sit back, relax and try not to bleed everywhere as you get skullfucked by an awesome week of new metal.

Wrong One To Fuck With (Relapse)
On a playlist with Suffocation, Devourment and Cannibal Corpse
Listen: “Die With Integrity”

I’m really tempted to start this of with some sort of abortion joke. But I highly doubt that I have one that hasn’t already been made with this band. Dying Fetus’ eighth full-length record is more or less the standard effort that one would expect from them. It’s yet another good album from one of death metal’s best acts, however, it doesn’t go out of its comfort zone too much. If you’re already a Dying Fetus fan, then Wrong One To Fuck With is business as usual. But since we have more music to talk about, let’s make like a baby and abort… to the Goatwhore album below this.

Vengeful Ascension (Metal Blade)
On a playlist with Skeletonwitch, Allegaeon and Eyehategod
Listen: “Mankind Will Have No Mercy”

I saw Goatwhore open for Amon Amarth on my birthday last May and boy, what a show they put on. In fact it was so good that I celebrated with beer, met vocalist Ben Falgoust completely hammered at an afterparty, and then lost the picture I took with him for a month before I finally got it on our Instagram. Oops. Anyway, Goatwhore are at the top of their game and this album is shaping up to be an absolute homewrecker. Axl would agree with me, but that’s only because I’ve been secretly pulling the strings behind MetalSucks for all of these years and he doesn’t have a choice. Pretty nice of me to let Axl and Vince have all the fame and glory for this, isn’t it?

Slime and Punishment (Nuclear Blast)
On a playlist with Suicidal Tendencies, Toxic Holocaust and Iron Reagan
Listen: “Amateur Sketch”

Any metal fan who hadn’t heard of Municipal Waste before the 2016 election most certainly had heard of them by the end of it. Why? Because of a certain shirt regarding a certain Cheetoh of a president that we have. MetalSucks’ own Maximus says that the metal superhero speed-punks have delivered the album America needs, and I really couldn’t have described it better myself. Maybe that has something to do with an excessive amount of whiskey and maybe it doesn’t. So get slimed, get punished, and get in here because there isn’t anything you won’t like about the newest album from Municipal Waste.

Psychic Rockers from the West Group (Weathermaker Music)
On a playlist with Corrosion of Conformity, The Company Band and Fu Manchu
Listen: “How to Shake Hands”

In case Municipal Waste’s anti-Trump message wasn’t enough for you, then you can put some money down on Clutch’s “How to Shake Hands” being about a certain dumbshit president of ours. The album title, Psychic Rockers from the West Group, sums them up perfectly. I haven’t listened to much Clutch in my time, but that is absolutely about to change because, well, it needs to. If you’re lucky, like me, then you can see Clutch on tour with Primus. If not, then you can just watch the live footage we have and use your imagination.

Shattering Light’s Creation (Tofu Carnage)
On a playlist with Nightbringer, Behexen and Winterfylleth
Listen: “Haunting Black Infinity”

As I said in the intro, Tyrannosorceress win the band name of the week competition. Hell, even the name of their record label, Tofu Carnage, is pure gold. Looks can be deceiving, however, as one thing most people don’t usually group together are black metal and tofu, unless you’re that kvlt vegan who burned down Church’s Chicken. This is some high quality, homegrown black metal right here, and if for no other reason than their name, you owe it to yourself to check these guys out.
